...and heath ledger kicks the bucket

Just a few things worth ponderisation.
(Hate over-ponderising.)
Heath Ledger was found dead last night in his Manhattan apartment, pills strewn around him. Suicide or murder most foul? Either way, I know of one person in the world who is probably wracked in grief. (Besides the collective Australia and his mum) - my old digsmate. She was obsessed with the man. 'Tis very sad, his death. I reckon there are some things that Jesus wouldn't do. Like have a threesome, burp out loud, and stick his finger in the plug socket.

Jessica Fletcher. In Murder She Wrote. Like don't ever go to Cabbot Cove. You will die. I hated Bush before it was cool. Although, on that note, it's probably cooler these days to say that you love George Bush. Because you're going against what everybody else says. And that, my friends, is apparently cool. If you loved someone, and they grew a mullet, would you still love them? I suppose that would be the ultimate test. Right up there with his secret Croc collection.

There's nothing worse than knowing that in someone else's mind – someone else you were close to at one stage - that you don't exist. You're erased, deleted from memory. When your identity and your part in their lives is removed – like old testaments in history – it feels crap right?
Or is it really that bad? Surely if you're not part of their reality or memories, then how can they be a part of yours? Furthermore, perhaps the whole time period was imagined? Perhaps. It. Just. Never. Happened. At. All.

Poor old Heath. Looks like he ended up with a negative balance in the ledger of life.

I must say I do over-ponderise the last point quite often. Is it possible that people you think about or remember; remember you, and cherish or laugh at or cringe at those same memories...

Hectique...

Over-ponderising is so right now... I'm putting it down to NY hangover.

Jesus would totally be into threesomes. And have a mullet. Didn't he have a mullet anyway? Well we know what he used to get around on . Thats awesome!

Hey Peas!

I gather you are talking about ex-S in that last paragraph. It sucks, hey. I was recently put on limited profile by my ex-husband. That was a pooh feeling. I then decided, well, if you have such a low opinion of me that you only want me to be your limited Facebook friend, then your bum. And I promptly removed him from my friends list...

I suspect your ex still has pretty powerful feelings for you and doesn't know how to deal with them. The fact that he can't be "just good friends" suggests to me that there are deep and turbulent undercurrents running there...

Remember that history is written by the victor, not the victim - you are too powerful to let him get away with writing your history!

Kyk - I;m definitely starting to think it's moider most foul...

Dubai - happy hangovers boet! :)
And Leigh - Anne :) On the remembering you bit - the way I see it - I used to care about those things, thinking that it would be impossible to erase memories. But it's not - and now that I'm not drinking and am of clear-mind, I really believe that it is possible to rewrite history these days. In whatever form, whether it involves a mate, a family member or even an ex. And that's what I've done. It takes two to form a reality, so yeah, did my past really happen at all, or was it just a dream?
And yes, it's really not worth any more ponderisation than this. :)

Chews - ha ha ha! :)

Elle said...

I'm still in shock about Heath. I was busy flipping channels last night when I saw it. it only sunk in when my best friend phoned me in hysterics this morning. so sad. he seemed so different from the rest of hollywood. he was so hot too. :(

Peas on Toast said...

Elle- it's heavy hey? It's amazing how although we don't personally know celebrities (Heath and Princess Diana, for instance), we still feel this loss or void when they die unexpectedly. Crazy hey. And yes, he was so talented and so beautiful at the same time. :(

Thrills - ooh yes, will do! Thanks babe :)

Sheena Gates said...

I'm gutted about it. Heath rocked my world when I was 16. Seriously. I had a poster of him in my room and my brothers threw rocks at it.

Peas on Toast said...

Shebee - they threw rocks at him? What I reckon is call them into your room and demand they make a shrine now. You know, so that his ghost doesn't haunt them ,etc.
;)

Revolving Credit said...

Well, you know what they say 'old cowboys don’t die, they just fade away....except if they're gay cowboys, then they apparently OD on drugs'

His boyfriend, Jake Gyllenhaal, must be quite distraught??

Peas on Toast said...

Rev - his boyfriend, in all his hunky 6-packing, beautiful 9-rating hotness, must be overwhelmed with grief.

I want to know when people are going to start suspecting old Jessica as the murderer in all these cases.

The woman wakes up - to news her neighbour was murdered. The woman takes a little trip across the county & her hostess's neighbour is murdered. And all they keep asking her, is if they'll help her investigate.

A little too many coincidences, if you ask me!

I have hated Bush since Bin Laden taught me the term "American pig dog capitalist son-of-an-infedel bastard".

Peas on Toast said...

Champs - yeah. The only loophole in the series is the sheriff. Be the sheriff and you won't die. Even her mates aren't exempt!

The Divine Miss M said...

I've often wondered that about Jessica Fletcher. If I saw her walking down the street I'd run away in the opposite direction as fast as possible. Seriously, everyone who meets her ends up dead!? Why are her friends still friends swith her?!?!

My favourite definition of a mullet that I've ever heard

Mullet - Business at the front ... Party at the back

HAHAHHAHA, gives me the giggles everytime ;)

Peas on Toast said...

Miss M - oh yeah! My favourite are The Mississippi Mudflap and the Wisconsin Waterfall. :)

Guy McLaren said...

I reckon there are some things that Jesus wouldn't do. Like have a threesome, burp out loud,..

and JC would be the only person to lose with that attitude.

Guy- thanks dude, I'll take a look at it now.
